Chiropractic for a Healthier and Happier Pregnancy
Prenatal / Pregnancy Chiropractor in Tulsa: Dr. Howard Boos offers chiropractic care for expecting mothers. When your body goes through the various stages of pregnancy and labor, your spine is subjected to an extreme amount of stress. After all, it has to constantly adjust itself to support the growing weight of another person over a period of nine months. The center of gravity is shifted forward and a substantial amount of weight gain adds stress to the spine of the expecting mother. This stress frequently causes lower back pain, headaches or migraines, nausea, insomnia, and other symptoms that can affect your quality of life.
Over 50% of pregnant women complain of lower back pain during their pregnancy. This pain is mostly caused by trying to balance weight between an overworked spine and support system. With this being said, an uncomplicated delivery has a lot to do with the state of your body. A body that is stressed, misaligned and worn out can result in a painful delivery and create problems with the baby’s positioning.
